elections, drowning out the voices of ordinary american citizens eager to participate in the political process. citizens united also epitomizes the so-called corporate personhood movement in which some now say the corporations are people. the fact is corporations are not people, and the constitution was never intended to give corporations the same rights as the american people. corporations don't breathe. they don't have kids, and they don't die in wars. my constituents continue to express concern about the growing influence of corporations in our political discourse. they're also demanding action on campaign finance reform because they are repulsed by the large amount of money in our campaigns. and quite frankly, they want elected officials to spend more time on policy, deliberating and debating on issues and less time dialing for dollars. unfortunately, the republican leadership in the house has failed to address these pressing issues during the past two years. they have been indifferent. we haven't had the opportunity to vote on any legislation to curb the influence of unlimited and
in the past election. host: on twitter -- james in dickinson, texas, democratic caller. caller: good morning. that was a great speech that the president and vice president spoke yesterday. i have been watching it ever since it came on. i want to say hello to my pastor at the baptist church. i'm sure he's listening, and to all the church members. host: a little bit more from president obama's speech yesterday, talking about defending democracy abroad. [video clip] >> we still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. [[cheers and applause] our brave men and women in uniform tempered by the flames of battle are unmatched in skill and courage. our citizens, feared by the memory of those we have lostthoseknow too well the price it has paid for liberty. the knowledge of their sacrifice will keep us forever vigilant against those who would do us harm. but we are also heirs to those who won the peace and not just the war. we have turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends and we must carry those lessons into this time as well. we will defend our people and
for the presidential election in every state they can get away with it. we have a ban on the show talking about 2016. this is a corner stone, nobody is allowed to talk about the 2016 election, at least until next november. this is not about who the candidates will be, this is about whether or not they vote for a democratic candidate, any democratic candidate, this is about whether or not it results in us having a democratic president. this is going on in the states right now. hey, beltway, wake up. now it is time for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell. have a great evening. >>> the national rifle association is singing to new lows in the polls. and new lows in their tactics against president obama. they are now using the president's daughters. >> well, president obama trumped congress. >> the president is planning to take matters into his own hands when it comes to gun control. >> i'm confident there are some steps we can take. >> 19 possible actions he can take. >> i'm against having a king. >> president says if congress doesn't do what i want. >> somebody who wants to bypass the constitution,
that for all the purposes that people send us to congress or elect us to public office, whether it's county executive or a member of congress, is they expect us to do what is right for them when they are in most need of our help. many things we can do for ourselves, but some things are just beyond the most determined resourceful -- determined, resourceful, operational people can do and that is when a natural disaster strikes. so while we have had our conversations about what should be in the bill and how the bill should be bifurcated or in this case trifurcated and all the rest, when we have this vote today it will sweep away some of the concerns that people have about whether this assistance is going to actually show up. 79 days, 79 days since hurricane sandy struck the region. last year it was irene that struck much of the same area. some of the people haven't really fully recovered from that. whether it was the small business owner or homeowner or whatever, and now sandy. such a tremendous force. others have talked about, how do you mitigate for such a thing? how do you address issues re
ourselves, what's more important? that the right man is elected president or that star wars is with people who will protect it most? [twinkling] [tauntaun mewls] - unit four, what is it? over? - well, kid? - well, if you put it that way... - come in, unit four! what have you found? - nothing, sir. we just found some tremendous deals on cars nobody wants, that's all. barkley, out. - no! but obama wasn't really elected. don't you people care? - [choral singing] ♪ obama ♪ is president ♪ again captioning sponsored by comedy central from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is the daily show with jon stewart.

. all you have to worry about is the person elected the altar. the woman behind this new business, even when they say it's not, it's always about "money." all right. we start with the first to announce plans on how exactly it hopes to pay for obamacare. a little bit surprising. republican arizona governor says that the tax increase interstate is the answer. the governor proposing a new hospital provided tax, and this is on topple all the taxes we were just three weeks ago. a number of experts and even some hospitals are on board with the governor's new tax hike. with me now is one of them. from the university of arizona public health policy and management professor. welcome to the show. do you think this is a good idea? >> good evening. i think that for arizona this is a very novel and innovative approach to solving a particularly difficult dilemma in getting the 20 percent of arizona is a don't have health insurance coverage. this will get as part way there through medicaid expansion. melissa: stopping about maybe as 6 percent tax. the exact number is not laid out the look to cover the
it was unanimous that george washington had been elected president. the first thing they had to doffs notify washington he needed to come to take his oath of office. it took a little while for presidents of the united states in those days to get to wherever the federal government was so they had a couple of weeks to work things out. well the first thing they did was to write an oath for everybody else to take including the vice president of the united states. congress write it is oath that every other person who works for the government from military to judges to the legitimate tors. that is an oath written by congress and it's changed over the centuries. but the oath the president takes is unique. it's in the constitution and it's never changed. so the question was where are we going to swear in the president of the united states? well congress is meeting in federal hall on wall street. and it was a nice building. the house had the bigger room downstairs and the senate had the smaller room upstairs. and they said the president should be sworn in in our chamber. that was fine except everybod
in congress. >> the president's approval ratings are higher than at any time since he was first elected. >> and the polls are with the prident. but you make the most important point. nra has had this game all to themselves. they have been able to play it with no money in the game, on the side of people who wanted some sense of gun safety. now with people like gabby giffords, people who can attract funds and target them strategically i think the game is -- >> the president has the national -- we have more power than nra but i believe you were right from the standpoint and being a person who makes law people should come to ts table find out what they do agree on instead of politicizing it. it is a political issue. i think leaders should come together and stop the bipartisan -- with enyou have the nra saying we're against an assault weapons ban, against everything. to me the nra has become nothing more than a shield for the gun manufacturers. if you find out where their finances are coming it's true. they get their membership dues for sure but they get huge monies from gun manufacturers. t
and for the fact that it was the first time i was able to vote. i turned 21 on election day. as able to vote for kennedy that day. since then they changed the age to 18. since i started voting, i have plusssed 14 inauguration's the swearing in of lbj in dallas. it is something i would not miss for anything. one thing that impressed me so much was all the flag-waving in the crowd. i thought it was just beautiful. the music by james taylor. he was always one of my favorite. and the choir this thing be back on him. today the line about trampling out the grapes of wrath stuck with me. we have so much hatred today. i hope we can make some progress. host: i know you waited a long time. brandon is tweeting us. this is a beautiful day for our country. i'm going to find something good to do today. inauguration day is filled with many traditions. you just witnessed a signing ceremony. this happens in the presence room in the capital. you saw the president what the plans that are distributed to the leaders of congress. he also confirmed the nominations of john brennan it to be defense secretary appeare
policies. it's amazing to me. aren't we electing people to protect american people? >> yeah. if they can't pass this, i mean, what can they do? if they can't do this thing that has never ever been controversial. and the other thing that's really disturbing is everything now. the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling, the continuing budget resolution. everything is used as a bargaining chip to get their way in this very ideological way. you said you don't doubt the congressman's sincerity on deficit reduction. i do. when you look at the fact that he didn't vote for the fiscal cliff deal. if you're talking about deficit reduction from raising revenues, he's not on board at all. he only wants to see it come from cuts. so it's a specific piece of ideology that he is coming from. i think it's abhorrent to use something like disaster relief as a chip to get your way. >> richard, they're also threatening government shutdown. are there any boundaries to some -- and these are not all republicans, but these extreme republicans when it comes to their ideology no matter who it hurts? >> they blinked last t
a breath, threat leaders that have been elected do their jobs. nobody wants to pay anymore taxes. they take 38% out of my check every week in taxes. i get back maybe $1,000 if i'm lucky. the president has a lot on his plate. he is one man speaking for 600 million. how is that to get up in the morning and realize you have everybody in the entire united states looking for you to make the right choice. host: the population in the united states is 300 million. caller: i'm sorry, even 300 million, that's one man speaking for everybody. he's got to make the right decision every second of the day. that's impossible. the country -- the laws we have in place, they've been there. they do work, just everyone has to abide by the laws. everyone should be treated equally. hypothank you for your calls and comments. a tweet -- hypocoming -- host: coming up we'll be talking about the fiscal situation in their cities and the comments yesterday by vice president biden who addressed the 300 mares in attendance on guns and gun violence. and late ter president's promises, what did he fulfill in his first term. a
election. for now, the next 18 months, obama's going to drive the agenda here in washington. this is the best time for him to get through immigration reform, gun control. this is the time for him right now -- this next year particularly is when he has the most influence that he'll have. >> do you concur with that? if you do, what does that say about the last two years of eight years for a president in the white house? >> it says a lot over the last couple of years about campaigning and doing politics, which is normal for the modern presidency. i disagree a little bit with perry. i think the president has these first 100 days. beyond that, it's dependent upon the state of the economy. that's going to be a determinate factor. >> you say 18 months. you say 100 days. you're tough. >> 100 days, then we'll see. >> there's a new political article i want to go on. it says democratic senators in red states may break with the white house. part of the quote from the article reads as follows -- senior democratic senators and aides say the president must face a stark political reality ev
of the national hispanic leadership agenda and guest of the speaker. jeff al jazeera, governor elect, national press club speaker committee member who organized today's event. and michelle who is a national spokesperson of hispanic journalists. until yesterday. [applause] before becoming the mayor of los angeles, the 41st mayor, during his youth he became a farmworker volunteer and activist leading student walkout. this led him on the path taking him state assembly. also city hall and the inner circle of the democratic national committee, where he chaired the 2012 convention in charlotte. regarding the topic of immigration, mayor antonio villaraigosa has said that the time is now to pass comprehensive immigration reform. he has slammed congress for doing nothing on the issue. yet on sunday on face the nation he said he was heartened that republican senator john mccain and others have been discussing solutions. given the country's current fiscal fights, is it realistic to expect immigration anytime soon so how does the mayor feel about local immigration initiatives? well, immigration is not the
. this is where the people are. the election results haven't changed. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, will threats from the far right derail the president's sensible gun reforms? text a for yes. text b for now to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring results later on in the show. i'm joined tonight by bob shrum, contributor to interest daily beast. also david corn, msnbc analyst and d.c. bureau chief for mother jones. good evening. >> good evening. >> we are covering the crazy tonight. is that okay with you guys? >> you're covering them pretty well. >> well, i don't want to get in the way of any crazy talk that you might have to add to this conversation. what do you say to these people? >> well, you just made a good point that broadcasters and talkers have to sort of do what they can and make this debate a reasonable one. i'm still waiting for anybody right of center. political leader, a thought leader, a columnist, maybe charles krauthammer, anybody to step up and say listen, there is a real debate to be had. you can be
an office boy and get him elected to senate. other senators called him the senator from prendergast. he squeaks in to get reelected in 1940 and then they elevated him, not because he was qualified to be president, as emitted over and over again, but because he did not have a lot of enemies and he was very pliable. if wallace had been in there, there would have been no atomic bomb, and no nuclear arms race, and very possibly no cold war. wallace could see the world through the eyes of our adversaries. he understood the soviets. he understood the chinese. >> he was an anglophobe too. roosevelt was as well. he repeatedly told his son, we are not going to be played as a good time charlie as we were in world war i. >> he also campaigned with african americans at a time of jim crow, and went to africa. >> he was shocked. he said the british empire said these people back a hundred years. >> you made the movie born on the fourth of july. you made platoon. and now have written the untold history of the united states and done a showtime series. what is most important, do you feel, that has not be
, at the 16th of january, we have 28 finally deaths. when i became mayor, when i first put my election, and mexico the term is usually three years. my state is the only state that lasts for years. we decided we needed to change the model and made that a partnership and assign the retired general to become chief of police. a couple of months into the new administration, we had the police force, police officers didn't want to work with the general. and of course we were wondering if it had to do some with low wages for the betterment of the working conditions. the strike was orchestrated and they didn't want to work under a military chief. we have to take a very tough decision because there was something totally out of our hands. what we did is we decided to fire and to disappear the police officer department. of course after they heard i had taken the decision to disappear, they decided to go back to work and we justify one condition. you can go back to work if you do three things. number one. number two coming take a polygraph and number three can be said that due to an economic invest
until after the election. >> do you know specifically, as you reported specifically who that person was who made the decision to hold off on the arrest of this illegal intern in the centsenator's offe until after the election. >> no, i don't have, a piece of the puzzle i don't have yet and internal documents don't provide specific names, just the time trail, if you will, of when particular events occurred. >> why was it-- what made him illegal? >> he had arrived in the united states in the '90s on a visitor visa that allowed him to stay in the country for six months, and he overstayed that visa, as many do. the problem of visa overstays as you well know is one that's become a tricky issue. the department is trying to go back and figure out who is in the country based on these expired overstays of visas, and this is one of those situations where this young man arrived in florida in the '90s with his family and overstayed that visa. >> does he have any criminal history? >> he does,'s a registered sex offender in the state of new jersey. accused at 15 of molesting an eight-year-old, at
pump fake and go by you. >> doug: you mentioned his three-year stint at rice before electing to transfer leaving that program. five-point lead for oregon after the free throws by dotson. woods got a hand on a pass and dotson with the loose ball. dotson in the open floor. back for woods for the nancy finish. and ucla, let's see here, a time-out or violation on the inbounds play. i believe oregon saying that travis west stepped on the baseline. >> doug: so ben howland is yelling for time. he's calling for time. first there's a deflection. woods switched on the ball screen. damyean dotson, ucla just stopped playing. dotson attacks, kicks out to woods. ben howland is yelling time-out as everybody at home, you're a ucla fan saying time-out. when ucla got the ball in, they stepped inbounds. the only question is did anybody on the floor actually call the time-out. >> spero: all kinds of confusion here. 7-point game as it stands now. as oregon coming on with the game hanging in the balance. they have hit six straight shots. >> doug: ucla flat footed. damyean dotson says fine, i'll ge
to grow this economy and put people back to work. and despite that conversation, and despite the election results, the position that's been taken on the part of some house republicans is that, "no, we've got to do it our way, and if we don't, we simply won't pay america's bills." well, that can't be a position that is sustainable over time. it's not one that's good for the economy now. bes certainly not going to the kind of precedent that i want to establish not just for my presidency, but for future presidents, even if it was on the other side. democrats don't like voting for the debt ceiling when a republican is president, and yet you -- but you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would go ahead and default if we didn't get 100 percent of our way. that's just not how it's supposed to work. jon karl. >> thank you, mr. president. on the issue of guns, given how difficult it will be -- some would say impossible -- to get any gun control measure passed through this congress, what are you willing or able to do, using the powers of your presidency, to act withou
to get its act together and get the economy moving. >> the american people also elected another house of representatives, a republican house of representatives, and that is our most direct form of representation in the federal government, the house of representatives, and they're the ones that control the purse strings. we have to do something. this isn't -- the thing is this is not about party politics. this is about the solvency of this country, it is about this country being the greatest nation on earth. it's our greatest threat to our national security. >> some people would say it is about party politics and some people, frankly, blame the tea party for this terrible gridlock in the house of representatives. there's a tea party group in south florida that's going to change its name to not include the tea party because the public reacts so negatively to that title now. >> i think that's because we have been, i mean just given a bad rap. all we're about is fiscal responsibility. we're not about social issues. all we want is washington to live within their means, just like families a
and its citizens, not the election results. also vice president joe biden and his family greeted supporters at the latino inaugural party. >> hundreds of thousands are gathering on the national mall to see history being made. >> and while officials say right now there is no credible threat, security, as you can imagine, is once again extremely tight. >> reporter: they will be everywhere, snipers dotting roof tops, the coast guard patrolling waterways, military fighter jets enforcing a no-fly zone. 13,000 security personnel bla blanketing the washington mall. >> with this number of people coming, it requires a lot of coordination and organization. >> reporter: all coordinating here. the multiagency communications center overseen by the secret service at an undisclosed location. they'll monitor intelligence threats. the 2009 inauguration was a logistical nightmare, hundreds getting stuck in this tunnel. authorities say this time it will be better. >> there will be such a different feel when you come down this time for the inauguration. there is extensive signage. we have social med
it down to the american public. and why was he doing that yesterday? because mid term elections are coming up and he wants to blame the republicans now -- >>eric: in two years. can i take issue with that? i don't think he was very good yesterday. i think the american people were watching him. they saw a guy saying give me the checkbook, i got it. i'll take it from here. there's a couple of things he said. he said i won't negotiate with a gun to the head of the american people. i'm not sure that was really resonating with a lot of american people. also he said we saved $2.5 trillion over the last couple of -- where? >>gretchen: i'm not saying everything he said is resonating. >>eric: he said $2.5 trillion -- he was very successful when it came to campaign. he thinks he is still campaigning. >>gretchen: but he is still campaigning for mid term elections. that's my point. >>steve: i think the american people are like you've got four years. you're already complaining about the other guys. we're going to have two or four more years of this. we've given you $16 trillion. can't you live within yo
it would have helped us in the election if we'd run a tax bill on the floor and actually run a medicare bill. last year's budget was i think about one page. not even one page. there's a lot more heavy lifting than a one-page tax plan. i think republicans could do ourselves good by striking out prorkviding leadership, outlining what a breath program looks like, same with the house and other entitlement reform. let's secure medicare, medicaid, sos and it's one thing to have a paragraph in the budget and another to pass things on the floor. i think it's time we took that chance and put out what we're for in a detailed manner. these are serious times. it's not about gains before the next election. it's gains with our credit worthiness long-term. >> i think it's important to point out that one of the reasons leadership may be able to shorten the years to balance is buzz of the recent tax increases. so it's not just a structural change in what we're doing, it's that there have been tax increases. so if taxes were lowered again, then that might change the picture. i think we haven't been given
for these minorities to vote, as they did in the last election. what did that produce? the court struck most of that down. but most importantly, it caused people to turn out and stand in line, because these republicans were trying to keep us from voting. >> now, of course marco rubio, a senator from florida took issue with it. do you see any other republicans coming out, condemning these kinds of laws like powell just talked about? >> well, listen, no one has the kind of strength of conviction that general powell does when it comes to critiquing the republican party. part of that is because he's not really in politics the way some of these folk are. but there to be a reckoning in the republican party. they have to deal with everything he has laid out here, because the demographics are the destiny for the party. unless they want to become obsolete, they have to pay attention to the issues colin powell laid out for them on "meet the press" yesterday. >> it doesn't sound like you think the republicans are going to take any of his advice. >> there is no suggestion that they will, ed. the proof w
of four other supervisors. now, milk, a former supervisor, became one of the first openly gay men elected to public office in the u.s. when he won a seat on the board of supervisors back in 1977. he was assassinated at city hall more than a year later. now, there were a few people we spoke with this morning when just want this to remain sfo. quite a few people are voicing opinions on our facebook page. some say the name is appropriate. >> hopefully, residents of san francisco -- they've always known this city will take a leadership role and if san francisco won't do it, who will? and so i think it's appropriate. and milk's nephew says this sends a powerful message across the globe. the cost of the name change could be between $50,000 to $250,000. campos says he's looking for private donations to help in the funding. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, brian. >>> 7:37. let's get you moving now. sal, 280, how is it doing? >> it's a little bit slow. northbound 280 driving into the valley. it's been slow from downtown san jose. we haven't had any crashes along the way that have b
to elect them with. since i am an independent i didn't like that. you know, another thing with n.r.a., they don't care really who becomes a member, whether you're a criminal or you can't own a gun legally. they don't care. they don't cleck for that. to me it's mainly the republicans when it comes to all the money. there should be something to stop people killing people and maybe it should be where something has to have insurance to carry a weapon and let them do the background checking on people if they couldn't insure themselves and they shouldn't own a gun. that's my comment. thank you. guest: the n.r.a. is a national organization that represents more than four million people. i assume most of them own firearms. over 100 million people in the united states own firearms. and so this is an issue that is much broader than any individual organization, and it's very, very important that organizations that want to protect our civil liberties, you know, represent the people that they represent, but it's also important that the congress recognize this is a much, much broader issue. aga
tour of duty. he is returning to england later this week. we electing benjamin netanyahu for another term. the party cookbook to have fewer seats in parliament after those voting results are out tomorrow morning. netanyahu says this property is dealing with taiwan's nuclear ambitions. connell: the nation's graduation rate hitting the highest level. that is better than 75% of them doing it on time. during 1976 topped that of the three plus billion graduates. 78% finished on time this time around. those are stats that are getting better. a controversy brewing of north after canada's new $20 bank note came out. the crisis is over at the maple leaf. many people believe it represents a norwegian maple leaf. they call it the looney, maybe for good reason. if you have not had your flu shot yet, you may not have to worry after all. there is a tiny ice cream maker that has created a flavor of sorbet that soothes your sore throat with it. this is pretty good book stuff here. dagen: just find be the bourbon. dennis: eight dollars for a pint of this stuff. that is what it looks like. dagen: i do
purposes. >> i just want to say the whole business about people use today is mitt romney lost the election with the whole horse and bayonet. i wish would stay away from that because the president said were not using bayonets anymore. so it's a different weaponry, but the other thing missing here i think when i talk about overreach, the e-mail you read in general kristol's observation is people say, why do you need an assault weapon? nobody needs an assault weapon, but that's not the issue. by somebody in this country need to have a trial by jury? by somebody who's robbed a bank need to have the fourth amendment having a search warrant before you issue? nobody needs those things. the issue as they were enshrined in the constitution. so you have to make sure you work with what the supreme court has said. the right to bear arms is an individual right. the first of all affect the value can you can have reasonable restrictions, so the path forward for responsible legislators is to find out what the reasonable restrictions are that save lives. i think the taking of when human life is a horrible
